Thinking of Us
rocket

In a land of laundry and lists
 1
meaningful kisses and economy shows
 2
Dream
 3
faraway places surrounded by everyday faces
 4
that glow in the moonlight
 5
like a firefly might if not closed for the night
 6
 
 
I’m amazed at the ways you creep
 7
crawl into my thoughts
 8
like a daddy long legs in a warm garden morning
 9
With no warning you flash like a fire
 10
rekindle desires that died a long time ago
 11
 
 
You’re at your best free and distressed
 12
but I thought you should know
 13
the fantasy my idle mind sows
 14

A poem written by a much younger me, sometime in the late 90s. My muse cried when I gave it to her, and kept it in her purse for years, which I would probably consider my biggest success as a poet.

There's a few parts I like so I thought I'd share it.
